Eyes track, read, and lead the rest of the body. True timing really happens here. Not everyone has the same visual abilities. For this reason, two people with identical swing mechanics and similar athletic coordination will not hit with the same consistency. A hitter's hand speed and barrel accuracy/efficiency are a direct result of great eyes or visual speed.
The Hi-Viz Softball is a one-of-a-kind ball because it exaggerates seams. Seams are the only way for a hitter to read or interpret what direction a pitch is going. I am recommending the Hi-Viz Softball to all hitters serious about developing their recognition skills and improving their time to contact.
